Struggling to get your child to write or draw?
Try this great idea from one of our lovely parents - The Magic Post box!!
Simply create a post box at home and get the children to post any writing or pictures into the box. Without the child knowing, take a photo of their work and send it to friends or family. The recipient can then celebrate receiving their work in 'the post'. We all have a Great Aunt Alice who needs a sign for her gate! Get creative!
